New year, new kitchen trends. While minimalism and increased gold appliances were huge for 2018, the new year is bringing in a few unique ideas for the core of the home. If you're planning a kitchen reno--or only need to be inspired--you will need to know what designers do for 2019. We talked with a few of our trusted sources to hear what they are seeinginstalling and -- this year.
1. White Cabinets Are Over
"I love the swing toward daring colored cabinetry instead of the anticipated white," designer Danielle Rollins tells House Beautiful. "It really provides a kitchen a character and finish. "Denise McGaha agrees, saying she's using colour on walls, cabinets, and even appliances (like a plum-colored LaCanche range she's now installing for one lucky client). Need a push?

2. Minty Fresh
Even more especially, designers say mint green is your colour du jour. Everybody seems to need light green cabinetry," says Jennifer Beek Hunter, proving this kitchen by Young Huh from 2012 is still piled in style.
3. Natural Stone
To balance out all that colour, incorporate natural elements. According to Los Angeles-based Natalie Meyers,"people are falling in love with all the subjective canvases painted by Mother Nature and utilizing natural stone beyond countertops. Designers are ongoing the stone material to waterfall edges and tall backsplashes." Occasionally they carry the stone all the way into the ceiling, and you may also create drawer fronts and hood vent covers out of natural stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cupboards are getting bolder, some appliances are carrying a different type of dramatic turn. "Matte black fixtures and hardware are growing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was once a minimal and stark option in white contemporary kitchens is now an enjoyable way to subtly add comparison to wood cabinets and much more conventional, Shaker-style kitchens."
5. High Tech
As our devices get smarter, so, too, do our kitchens. 1 fashion designer Niki Papadopoulos does not see going anywhere is"technology seamlessly integrated into appliances," she says. The ideal example? Samsung's Family Hub refrigerator, which includes a touch screen, interior cameras, and WiFi connectivity, so it is possible to search recipes from the refrigerator, see what is inside while you're searching, and leave reminders and notes to relatives. Does not get much brighter than that.
